How do I post an open position?
If you would like to post a new position, please visit the Financial Aid website.
What types of forms are required for employment?
All students who wish to work on campus must provide proof that they are eligible to work in the United States and must complete the Federal Employment Eligibility Form, also called an I-9. To view the list of accepted documents visit the Financial Aid website at:
How does Work-Study work?
Federal Work-Study is a campus-based employment program that is subsidized by federal funds. Students that are eligible are allocated a specific amount of work-study that they can earn and apply to the cost of their education. For eligible students, 50% of student's wages are paid by the Federal Work-Study program and 50% are paid by the university department until the student work-study allotment is exhausted.
How many hours a week can students work?
Fifteen hours a week is the maximum during the academic year, 37.5 hours during summer and winter break. A student should work approximately ten hours per week to fulfill their work study allotment. If students can’t get enough hours from one department, they may choose to take an additional job.
How is time reported?
Students utilize Timeclock, accessed via the student portfolio, for the reporting of hours worked. Supervisor training modules are located in ePortfolio/Tools&Links/Timeclock Management/Help.
Note: Hours submitted retroactively are not eligible for the Federal Work-Study match.
Do hours worked during school breaks count toward a student's work-study allotment?
Yes, all hours worked during the academic year will draw against a student's work-study allotment. This includes fall, Thanksgiving, winter and spring break. Hours earned during winter break draw from a student's spring allotment (i.e. the fall semester ends on the last day of exams during the fall semester). Earnings following the last day of exams in the spring semester would not draw from a student's spring allotment, since this date signifies the end of the academic year.
